Christopher Columbus Sailing the Ocean Blue

1 Nephi 13:12; “And I looked and beheld a man among the Gentiles, who was separated from the seed of my brethren by the many waters; and I beheld the Spirit of God, that it came down and wrought upon the man; and he went forth upon the many waters, even unto the seed of my brethren, who were in the promised land.”

This prophecy by Nephi is referring to Christopher Columbus.

And as everyone’s probably heard by now, Columbus didn’t discover America. Natives were here obviously and it’s been shown the Vikings landed in Newfoundland in 1440. 

He discovered Jamaica and from there sailed on to find Central America on his last voyage.  So much for all the songs learned about 1492 if you grew up before the twenty-first century! Not to mention the “prophetic” utterances of Nephi in 600 BC.
